Press Statement

Zimbabwe Achievers Awards would like to inform the public that the ZAA 10th Anniversary celebrations and Awards Dinner Gala set for Friday 10 April 2020 in Victoria Falls have been postponed to December as part of wider protective measures taken in  the interest of public health in light of the spread of the Corona virus.

The decision was made after wide consultations and advice from relevant authorities and actors such as the World Health Organization (WHO),  governments and health experts and have come to a collective decision along with principal partners ZimThrive and other sponsors.

The ZAA 10th Anniversary event was set to welcome a large number of people based in various parts of the world, but in a bid to minimize the risk of the spread and impact of the virus the event will now be held in December in the resort town.

The event was part of ZimThrive’s homecoming initiative along with various other affected events and we are optimistic of a successful event once the precautionary measures are lifted and the situation under control. 

“Following advice and guidelines from WHO, the Zimbabwe government and respective governments globally we feel that minimizing travel at the time will reduce the spread and impact of the virus.”

“Our key priority is the safety and health of our fellow Zimbabweans and we have collectively made the decision to postpone the impending homecoming set for 1-30 April 2020. The event will now take place from 1-31 December 2020,” read part of the statement released by ZimThrive.

As ZAA we put the public interest and safety above everything else and will continue cooperating with relevant health authorities regarding advice on the matter and apologize for any inconvenience caused in the meantime.

We would also like to advise that at the moment all other editions on our regular calendar are going ahead as planned with ZAA South Africa scheduled for April 25th, ZAA UK on May 30th and ZAA USA edition taking place on June 6th 2020. Any enquiries pertaining to the events can be addressed to tatenda@cmgmediagroup.co.uk

We would also like to thank all stakeholders, media and partners who have been playing a key role in preparations and look forward to hosting the event in December. The exact dates will be announced in due course after completion of consultations.
